Declared Emergency Closure Days (ex: snow days) payments/credits
If the B.A.S.E. program closes due to District
Declared Emergency Closure, parents who have paid for childcare services that
day may apply unused monies toward future childcare payments. These monies must
be used in full by the end of the school year. Parents receive a maximum of
the first two (2) District Declared Emergency Closure Days per school
year, per child. These days do not accumulate from year to year, nor
are they transferable to other families.
